Davide Megna: Hello, I am Davide Megna from Amici Miei Ristorante in Rockville, Maryland and today I am going to show you how to make Lasagna. I am going to show you today from making the pasta dough, from rolling it into sheets, preparing the Bolognese sauce the Bchamel sauce and cooking the pasta and then putting the Lasagna together, baking it and serving it. These are some of the tools you need to make your Lasagna, a pasta rolling machine or a rolling pin, couple of pots and pans, a skimmer, a spoon and a whisk. The ingredients we are going to use today are flour, eggs, extra virgin olive oil, milk, butter, ground beefs, tomatoes, carrots, onions and celery and rosemary and sage.
There are some safety tips, be careful if you have children around your kitchen while you are cooking, you can cook with them, but make sure all the sharp utensils are out of their reach and try to use the back burners of your stove to avoid any spilling on your children. Before we begin to make our lasagna today let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Davide Megna, I am the chef and co-owner of Amici Miei Ristorante in Rockville, Maryland. I was trained, born and raised in Italy, I went to culinary school also in Italy in Turin and I moved to United States in 1994 where I worked for nine years in Ceviche Maryland and then I opened my restaurant about four years ago and then let's get started making our lasagna.
